. . . the Lord my God hath given me rest on every side, so that there is neither adversary nor evil occurrent.
In thee, O Lord, do I put my trust: let me never be put to confusion.
Be thou my strong habitation, whereunto I may continually resort: thou hast given commandment to save me; for thou art my rock and my fortress.
Deliver me, O my God, out of the hand of the wicked, out of the hand of the unrighteous and cruel man.
For thou art my hope, O Lord God:
Let my mouth be filled with thy praise and with thy honour all the day.
For mine enemies speak against me; and they that lay wait for my soul take counsel together,
O God, be not far from me:
Let them be confounded and consumed that are adversaries to my soul;
But I will hope continually, and will yet praise thee more and more.
My mouth shall shew forth thy righteousness and thy salvation all the day;
I will go in the strength of the Lord God:
